of the answers. >> reporter: more recently, president john f. kennedy's affairs were notorious. lyndon johnson was such a man with the ladies that he allegedly had a buzzer installed in his congressional office to alert him when lady byrd johnson was on the way. journalists never reported on such things back in the day, but that eventually changed. so did technology. recently, it's the digital footprint of dalliances that led to spectacular falls. remember congressman anthony weiner, who tweeted a photo of his privates. when the story broke, he denied it, claiming his twitter account had been hacked. eventually he confessed and resigned. >> i apologize first and foremost to my wife and to my family. >> reporter: there was client number nine, aka eliot spitzer, the governor of new york and former cnn anchor. when investigators followed his money, it revealed he spent thousands as a regular client of a call girl. he, too, stepped down. >> i have acted in a way that violates my obligations to my family and that violates my or any sense of right and wrong. >> reporter: and now come
